I decided to participate in my first PatternReview sewing contest. I’ve been a free member of PR for almost 3 years now and although I’ve sewn along with contests before, I’ve never officially entered. This year will be different. I’m in the process of reigniting my Creative Spirit and what better way to start then to grab a pattern, choose some fabulous fabric and GET TO IT !! I’ve chosen Simplicity #2223 for it’s versatility as a jacket. It can be made in many types of fabrics and can act as a blank canvas for any details I may wish to incorporate. I’m just gonna have FUN with it!!
The concept behind this contest is to take a single view from a pattern of your choice and recreate it in multiple versions in any way you’d like. The point is to really stretch your creativity with different fabrics, trims and embellishments. If you’d like to read about this contest, review the rules, and possibly participate please check out PatternReview and consider becoming a member of this wonderful sewing, quilting and very friendly community!! So please check back and follow my progress as I sew my way through this month on the One Pattern Many Looks Contest. Thanks
